    bye bye vxl motor...

    recently got a used SC10 with a vxl system.

    drove it yesterday on a 3s. it was very hot outside but the truck was geared low.

    The heat alone I don't think would have killed the motor....but a jump at the skate park which slapped the chassis hard caused the heated magnets the shatter.

    The windings may be fine, as the truck stopped the instant it landed (rotor didn't keep spinning) but I would have to figure out a way to extract the magnets in order to put in a new rotor. With the magnetic field...they are in there pretty good.

    In the second pic you can see the rotor's shaft below the screw driver handle.

    push it out from the other end or stick some glue on the shaft and put it back in until it dries then try to pull it back out.

    1st part I tried already. magnets are strong and there is little to push against (other send of magnets is close to the ball bearing on the other end with same diameter hole)
    The 2nd I had considered and may try.

    RE: bye bye vxl motor...

    Reading your post the magnets might have kept moving(really really probable) though for a few revolutions after it came off the rotor which could have stripped the thin insulation on the wires. I've had something similar happen in a fishtank pump the magnets came off a rotor and kept spinning.
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    that's is true.
    its just as possible that cause of how strong they are I will damage the wires just trying to push the magnets out. Its probly a lost cause.

    Could always put the end cap back on (without the rotor), cut the wires off, and use it as a shiny paperweight

    even if you did get it out it might be a risk paying out for a new part if it is faulty.
